About the Bar

Legal Ethics

The Standing Committee on Legal Ethics was established to issue advisory opinions interpreting and applying the Rules of Professional Conduct. The nine committee members are appointed by the president of the Virginia State Bar and may serve two consecutive three-year terms. This committee meets regularly to review and consider formal requests for advisory opinions by members of the bar seeking guidance on legal ethics matters. The committee also serves as a clearing house for receiving comments on or proposals for amendments of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The committee may study a proposal to amend the Rules of Professional Conduct and make recommendations to the Executive Committee and Council regarding such a proposal. The committee’s work may include other specific assignments or requests in its area of general responsibility from the bar’s officers, the Executive Committee or Council.
